The Henson Shaving AL13 safety razor is out of this world literally. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum the DE razor is poised for atmospheric reentry with the optimum shaving angle and minimal blade exposure and a mild shave. The AL13 is fabricated using AS9100 aerospace standards the same criteria used to create satellite components, the Mars Rover, and the International Space station. The accurate blade exposure combined with the innovative head design is what makes the Henson Al13 razor truly unique.
Henson shaving out of Ontario Canada went back to the drawing board to redefine the wet shaving experience unlike any other, reimagining the relationship between the razor head and the blade support. The blade support creates the most accurate blade exposure known to humankind. A DE razor that simultaneously is aggressive in nature but at the same time a truly mild shave. Ideal for any grown man, woman, or beginner to wet shaving that is looking for performance out of the box without suffering from the side effects of DE razors shaving.
While the rest of the competition builds in allowance for casting and painting, Henson Shaving required and achieved a remarkable less than five ten-thousandth of an inch (0.0005) tolerance on critical dimensions through the machining and anodizing process. This means the blade sits straight every single shave.
The Henson aluminum razor Al13 is lightweight weighing only 37 grams, it feels nimble yet in control with the unique staggered diamond pattern knurling. The blade Gap in the 3 piece design head is set to .68mm while the exposure of the blade is kept at .001" to an exact degree of tolerance. Normally this would yield a razor on the aggressive side, however, the substance of the Henson Al13 design mitigates the consequences of the unwanted aggression by the engineering of the head. This is how theHenson Al13razor achieves good safety and futuristichigh shaving performance simultaneously. This level of detail allows theHenson Al13 to perform unlike any other, shearing facial or body hair precisely at skin level rather than cutting beneath the skin.
